Résumé partiel
A study was undertaken to study various sheep production practices followed by the shepherds in irrigated and rainfed areas of Krishna district. A total number of 250 sheep farmers and their flocks comprising 125 from each area of the district were interviewed by a questionnaire schedule and required information was collected. Out of the total farmers, illiterate sheep farmers constituted about 81.6 and 88 per cent in irrigated and rainfed areas, respectively. Literate farmers recorded were 18.4 and 12 per cent, respectively, in irrigated and rainfed areas studied. Sheep farmers from Backward Communities constituted about 86.4 and 67.2 per cent, followed by Scheduled Castes community 8 per cent and 15.20 per cent, respectively, in irrigated and rainfed areas. Majority of the farmers in both the areas were landless (45.6 per cent in irrigated area and 72.8 per cent in rainfed area) followed by marginal land holders (36 per cent in irrigated area and 16.8 per cent in rainfed area). The average flock size in irrigated and rainfed areas of the district was 66.36±2.32 and 73.62±3.0, respectively. The average body weights in the male for 2 teeth, 4 teeth, 6 teeth and full mouthed animals in irrigated area were 42.0±0.49, 44.50±0.34, 44.33±0.40 and 44.29±0.28 ; while in rainfed area, the corresponding values were 39.92±0.33, 42.67±0.33, 43.11±0.20 and 43.57±0.20 Kg, respectively. The mean body weight (kg) for 2 teeth, 4 teeth, 6 teeth and full mouthed ewes observed were 31.99±0.270, 36.02±0.240, 37.27±0.167 and 40.52±0.269 kg, respectively, in irrigated area ; while in rainfed area, the corresponding values were 29.30±0.40, 34.84±0.40, 37.22±0.35 and 42.01±0.56 kg, respectively, in rainfed area. The average body lengths in the male for 2 teeth, 4 teeth, 6 teeth and full mouthed animals in irrigated area were 76.08±0.22, 77.83±0.37, 78.11±0.30 and 78.71±0.28 cm, respectively. While in rainfed area the corresponding values were 74.75±0.21, 76.17±0.30, 76.89±0.26 and 77.14±0.50 cm, respectively
